I grew up in the Chicago burbs and work in media. I think cost of living savings isn’t that much less than NY, and the media work in Chicago is for massive firms selling big food, big pharma, and very bland brands. I feel like it’s lay-off prone and the commuter culture is misery. NY isn’t an easy life, especially with a family, but I’m not moving back to Chicago ever.

I’m in Chicago right now and I think that for a family it’s a nice break from New York/a little bit of a slower pace with the same joys of city life... easier school systems in the suburbs but good quality everywhere, easier to raise families in the suburbs but there’s some neighborhoods in the city that are good for families too (Lincoln Park area is fairly easy to commute from to most downtown offices) Commuting from suburbs to city for work can be hard but public transportation is pretty efficient, honestly love the city, once you find your area/neighborhood it gets a lot easier

Similar situation. Commute isn't terrible, definitely longer than most i work with but door to door it is only and hour and ten mins (which includes walking from station to work). Schools are excellent summers are awesome but winter is long. Italian beef sandwiches are overrated. Good luck.

Feel kind of silly saying this, but getting more concerned about covid-19. I’m 28 y/o, generally healthy but think I may have high blood pressure, which I’ve read raises risk. Anyone else feel similar

I don’t get why the entire world is freaking out about Covid19. (1) be cautious, (2) don’t visit elderly relatives, but the way I see it- everyone’s going to come into contact with it- it’s inevitable

Anyone else still have the pinned post about the A wanting to WFH? Super irrelevant now (and tbh I find all pinned posts annoying and wish we could opt out...)?

To the Republicans here, how can you sit there and watch the government you elected totally screw this virus response up? Watching an interview with a FEMA admin, and they don’t have a number...

Always find these profiles annoying. Also notice they work at Herbalife. 🤦

every time a consultant glorifies their coffee addiction and reveres Starbucks, it grinds my gears. But this is cruel - close the damn stores.
